Former Florida State quarterback Clint Trickett has found a new home.

Trickett will graduate from Florida State, be eligible for the 2013 season and have two years of eligibility remaining.
West Virginia quarterbacks Paul Millard, Ford Childress and Chavas Rawlins have been competing to replace Geno Smith, who was picked in the second round of the NFL draft last weekend. Millard has the most experience of the three. In two seasons he’s completed 16-of-34 passes for 211 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions. Millard and Childress actually split reps this spring.
Trickett spent three seasons with the 'Noles, and completed 66 of 106 passes for 947 yards, seven touchdowns and four interceptions. He started just two games.
Trickett, who is from Florida, has family in Morgantown, W.Va. He chose the Mountaineers over Auburn, South Florida and Michigan.
